Tiffany took Shelby to her first Pediatrician visit yesterday. She is in the 25th percentile for weight, and the 90th percentile for height! She's going to be a tall one. Anyway, most things checked out well, but he did notice her eyes twitching a bit. We had noticed this some, but had forgotten to ask with all the other stuff going on. Dr. Love called this nystagmus. Our opthamologist doctor friend, Jeremy said that there may be some structural damage to the nerves which was caused by the hydrocephalus. So, we have an appointment June 30th with Dr. Wiggins, a pediatric opthamologist at Asheville Eye Associates. I will say it seems like she is doing this less, so hopefully it will go away altogether.
We are also going back to Duke on Monday to get the sutures removed, and have a few follow up tests done. At some point in the near future we will have CT scans and MRI's done to see how the brain is reacting to the reduced pressure. We are praying that some of the tissue will rebound. We will post something after each of these visits.
